“Put the Gawker titles in a media conglomerate and they would spontaneously combust. Imagine, for instance, how AOL Time Warner would handle the X-rated party photos in yesterday’s Fleshbot, or a snide report on Defamer about the latest dross from Warner Brothers, or Gawker’s borderline libelous mockery of [Time Warner CEO] Dick Parsons. Without media conglomerates as targets, the Gawker titles would have no purpose. Gawker is not for sale but it is, more importantly, and in a deeper sense, unacquirable.”
–Nick Denton, founder, Gawker Media, quoted in OJR
Susan sez: What do you think folks, is Gawker really unacquirable (grin)?
